PLAY SUMMARY

By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead -- expiring in reverse order, youngest to oldest, from blunt object to the head, disappearance, and finally consumption. Tuneful songs, and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. A magical, musical fable that weaves in and out of time, where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual's successes or failures.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. YOUR NAME MAY APPEAR IN MORE THAN ONE LOCATION, INCLUDING ON THE CALLBOARD AS CAST.

Thank you for your applications! What a great team we have!
